Majestic Mayon

 I saw this picture from Inquirer.net today.

Majestic and grand. The wraparound cloud with seven birds was a dramatic addition which the surgeon/photographer chanced upon. Lucky!

What makes this volcano stand out from the rest is its almost perfect cone. I remember a school performance when I was in grade school about the myth of the Mayon Volcano. The myth says that the Mayon stands as a symbol of love between Princess Magayon and the man she loves, Panganoron. Ill-fated love. I was one of those girls surrounding the princess when she was stabbed so I clearly remember her well-orchestrated fall:-) The words “grand” and “majestic” were frequently repeated to describe the Mayon Volcano backdrop.

Aside from Vigan, the Mayon Volcano in Legaspi City is one place I wish to go to. This post from the Inquirer reminded me to prod my husband once more. Destination: Legaspi City!

  1. hi arvinsign, the Inquirer caption says that the photographer took this in June 2007. There wasn’t an article about it so I don’t know why it was on the inquirer.net. but, it’s a beautiful sight:-)
